On Ramon Road in Cathedral City, beams and walls are beginning to frame a structure so big, you could rebuild the Palm Springs Convention Center on top of the same footprint and still have space to spare.
This is the future home of Sunniva, a Canada-based medical cannabis company that plans to grow, process and sell marijuana from a base in Cathedral City.
The construction underway today – the portion larger than the convention center – is only the first of two buildings that will be built on the Ramon Road campus. When both buildings are finished, they’ll cover 489,000 square feet, or more than eight football fields.
A weed campus the size of 8 football fields is coming to Cathedral City. It’s an example of one way cannabis companies eyeing California can grow larger while staying on the right side of state regulations. https://t.co/1eqfQGowVT #marijuana #cannabisindustry pic.twitter.com/n23qamq7Uk
